Being there for you, listening & understanding

How can I help?

Everyone experiences times in their lives where they feel they are struggling. Whether it’s feeling overwhelmed, stressed or something more troubling, counselling can help to better understand what is going on, where it might have come from and help you to make long lasting changes to empower yourself and move in a more positive direction.

BEST PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC APPROACHES

Every client is different, ever issue is different. Thus, Rachel emphasizes the importance of listening to her clients, learning about them and who they truly are, not just about their struggles, to create individual treatment plans and strategies that fit best for that specific client. Borrowing techniques from a variety of psychotherapeutic theories, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), solution-focused, psychodynamic, mindfulness and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), looking for what best suits each individual client.



ANALYZING THE ISSUES TOGETHER

Working collaboratively with her clients to gain insight on their struggles is Rachel’s priority. When we walk this therapeutic path side by side, the issues become clearer, easier to face and over time begin to lose their power over you, your thoughts and your behaviour.



TALKING, LISTENING & UNDERSTANDING YOU

In order to truly understand the breadth and depth of your struggles, a full holistic picture of who you are is required. This deeper understanding is revealed through Rachel’s keen ability to listen to your concerns, pose pointed questions and help you conceptually your struggles and sometimes frame them in a way you may not have been able to without support.



LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL

Sometimes the struggles we face seem insurmountable. It is Rachel’s belief that with a desire to work on the self, we an start to identify short and long-term goals to work towards during the psychotherapeutic process. In focusing on these goal it is often easier to see that there is, in fact, a light at the end of the tunnel and that often it is closer than we previously thought.

Happy, not “happy”

What is Happiness? This may mean many different things to many different people and may seem elusive at times. By reformulating our expectations with a focus on our values and learning to let go of the things we cannot control and focus on those we can, Rachel believes we can learn to find true happiness that is longstanding and can stand up to future roadblocks that we may face.

TALKING ABOUT THE PROBLEM

One of the first steps is to identify and explore the issues you are facing. As we flesh these out, we can start to prioritize your struggles and focus at those most pressing


ONOING DISCUSSION

Once we have a full understanding of your struggles, this is where the real work begins. Together, through the therapeutic dialogue, Rachel works with you to identify areas for change and ways to move forward towards your desired goals.


ANALYSIS

Through the therapeutic dialogue we work together to analyze your struggles. Rachel works to help enlighten your perspective on your struggles to gain insight and escape the negative thought and/or behaviour cycles we often find ourselves stuck in.


SOLVING THE PROBLEM

By committing to making changes and working towards resolution often we see with time that the doors of past issues begin to close. These may be issues we have been struggling with for days, weeks, months and even years. Closing these doors helps us to move forward and become more present in our lives instead of feeling pulled towards our pasts and often towards issues we cannot control.
